PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a man and woman from Florida have been arrested in Nebraska after a police chase that began in Kansas.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the two were captured Thursday afternoon near Plattsmouth in Cass County after fleeing on foot from their sport utility vehicle. Officers had used stop strips to flatten the SUV’s tires.

The Kansas Highway Patrol had notified its Nebraska counterpart earlier that the SUV was headed into Nebraska on U.S. Highway 75. Nebraska troopers chased the vehicle into Nemaha County but stopped just south of Auburn. Patrol aircraft followed the SUV until it was stopped.

Online court records don’t show whether either person in the SUV has been formally charged. Nebraska authorities say the driver is from Sunrise, Florida, and his passenger is from Orlando.
